DA Cape Town mayoral candidate Geordin Hill-Lewis explored some of Cape Town's transport options this past week, ahead of the announcement of his public transport plan on Thursday. On Wednesday, he took a MyCiTi bus. Parliamentary reporter Jan Gerber went along for the ride.

It is 05:41 on Wednesday. A MyCiTi bus engine rumbles as it leaves the Century City bus stop.

DA mayoral candidate for Cape Town Geordin Hill-Lewis excitedly turns to his media officer, Alex Lansdowne, and shows him the time on his cellphone.
